Let's create something beautiful AND an opportunity for our families to get together and spend time one with another, having fun while playing games of strategy


MEL’s Backgammon Chess & Checkers

A fun project for Machine Embroidery Lovers aka MELs in our world!

Some of my favorite memories are of sitting around a table playing games with my family.

There's joy to be had in sitting across a table, waiting for your partner to make their move.

Will they make the move you want them to, so that you can take the lead?

Or will they see something that you don't see and upset your plan to win?

Whether it's a cold winter night and you're playing in front of a roaring fire...

Or it's a steamy summer evening and you're hoping for a cool breeze...

With MEL's Backgammon, Chess and Checkers, there's fun to be had for the whole family.

"Your designs are beautiful!"

Oh, your designs are beautiful!

When I read your instructions, it's just ABC.

This is what you do, and all I need to do is follow it.

"Easy to do!"

Your designs are so wonderful, and they're easy to do if you just follow the instructions.

It's good that you are an engineer, because then you figure out how it goes together so that other people can do it.

And I think that's a talent, a good talent.

"Fun and amazing!"

I think Sarah's designs are just fun and amazing.

When I get everything stitched out, it's like I'm holding it up and I go, wow, did I really do that?

Meet Your Instructor

Dr. Sarah Vedeler

Since I was a young girl, I've had a love for sewing.

That love transformed into a hobby, a passion, and then a career.

Nearly 2 decades ago, I started designing my own quilts and offering those designs (as well as classes on how to use them) to quilters all over the world.

I discovered my super-power and purpose:

To ignite the fire of creativity in the hearts and minds of people who are hungry to experience the transformative process of creating something beautiful themselves.

Watching people of all skill-levels and walks of life grow their skillset and their confidence using my designs has been incredible.

In beautiful nerdy fashion, I mash up my PhD in Theoretical Computer Science and career as a Software Engineer with a love of color and design. 

The result?

Machine embroidery applique and quilting in the hoop designs which allow YOU to create spectacular quilts and other projects.
